Kenneth Chanda has agreed to be one of our correspondents in Zambia

A former medical librarian at the University of Zambia he was involved in working with others to promote telehealth in Zambia. His interests in this area continue and he has recently been active in advising the school where he is a Board member on their library.

He is also promoting health literacy at his local church Woodlands Mission Chapel among his fellow Christians to live a healthy life, working closely with church elders promoting herbal medicine in combating conditions such as diabetes and hypertension which have rocked many Zambians due to their lifestyle. He helps to explain basic health issues on common diseases among kids and older people using the experience he gained while working at the School of Medicine Medical Library.
